Where have we seen a shorthanded chance like this before? 

The Jets ended a 4 game, week long winless streak in their second game against the Devils. Even better, Mark Scheifele scored his second of the season to end a 24 game streak without a goal, and Evander Kane got his 8th after 11 games of frustration. Even the empty net goal to seal the game at 3-1 was Setoguchi's 6th after 7 games without a marker. 

Fans and the team itself are hoping this six-game road swing is the start of a new chapter in the season. An exorcism for three of the Jets' intended scoring forwards is the perfect way to kick things off.

There has been a 2-1/2 year debate raging among Jets fans and pundits about whether Ondrej Pavelec or the team's less than stellar defence is the cause of the team's inflated goals against. This season, I've been paying close attention to the context of every goal scored against the Jets, as well as the location of the goals in the hopes of providing new insight into that debate.

Today, we look at the results and my interpretation at the 25 game mark of the season.
